Algorithm design and analysis is fundamental to all areas of computer science and gives a rigorous framework for the study of optimization. This course provides an introduction to algorithm design through a survey of the common algorithm design paradigms of greedy optimization, divide and conquer, dynamic programming, and linear programming, and the NP-completeness theory.
The latest edition of the essential text and professional reference, with substantial new material on such topics as vEB trees, multithreaded algorithms, dynamic programming, and edge-based flow.
Some books on algorithms are rigorous but incomplete; others cover masses of material but lack rigor. Introduction to Algorithms uniquely combines rigor and comprehensiveness. The book covers a broad range of algorithms in depth, yet makes their design and analysis accessible to all levels of readers. Each chapter is relatively self-contained and can be used as a unit of study. The algorithms are described in English and in a pseudocode designed to be readable by anyone who has done a little programming. The explanations have been kept elementary without sacrificing depth of coverage or mathematical rigor.
DescriptionThis course will introduce you to algorithms in a variety of areas ofinterest, such as sorting, searching, string-processing, and graph algorithms.You will learn to study the performance of various algorithms within a formal, mathematical framework. You will also learn how to design very efficient algorithms for many kinds of problems. Mathematical experience (as provided by COMPSCI 250) is required. You should also be able to program in Java, C, or some other closely related language. Prerequisites: COMPSCI 187 and either COMPSCI 250 or MATH 455.
This is a graduate course in Algorithms. Although I willcover some undergraduate-level background in class, it will be brief,designed to be a refresher rather than a full-fledged introduction.If you are lacking proficiency in algorithms, you may want to takeCSE 373 instead.-->What's new this year We will focus on a smaller set of topics than what I have covered in myprevious offerings of this course. The goal is to give students more time todevelop their algorithmic problem-solving skills. We will explore the relationship to coding interviews. This does not meanthat we will write programs or do interview practice in this course. But some ofthe examples discussed in class as well as the homeworks will be modeled afterthose questions, so that you not only learn algorithmic techniques in thiscourse, but also their application to coding problems. We will also learn about algorithms implemented in frequently used systems(e.g., networks, operating systems) and software tools (e.g., diff, sort, git,gzip, rsync, and grep). The goal is to understand algorithmic choices insoftware system design.Course Topics Divide-and-conquer algorithms: Sorting techniques, searching and selection; Matrix and integer multiplication (3 lectures).

In Chapter 20, we saw how binomial heaps support in O(lg n) worst-case time the mergeable-heap operations INSERT, MINIMUM, EXTRACT-MIN, and UNION, plus the operations DECREASE-KEY and DELETE. In this chapter, we shall examine Fibonacci heaps, which support the same operations but have the advantage that operations that do not involve deleting an element run in O(1) amortized time.From a theoretical standpoint, Fibonacci heaps are especially desirable when the number of EXTRACT-MIN and DELETE operations is small relative to the number of other operations performed. This situation arises in many applications. For example, some algorithms for graph problems may call DECREASE-KEY once per edge. For dense graphs, which have many edges, the O(1) amortized time of each call of DECREASE-KEY adds up to a big improvement over the(lg n) worst-case time of binary or binomial heaps. The asymptotically fastest algorithms to date for problems such as computing minimum spanning trees (Chapter 24) and finding single-source shortest paths (Chapter 25) make essential use of Fibonacci heaps.From a practical point of view, however, the constant factors and programming complexity of Fibonacci heaps make them less desirable than ordinary binary (or k-ary) heaps for most applications. Thus, Fibonacci heaps are predominantly of theoretical interest. If a much simpler data structure with the same amortized time bounds as Fibonacci heaps were developed, it would be of great practical use as well.Like a binomial heap, a Fibonacci heap is a collection of trees. Fibonacci heaps, in fact, are loosely based on binomial heaps. If neither DECREASE-KEY nor DELETE is ever invoked on a Fibonacci heap, each tree in the heap is like a binomial tree. Fibonacci heaps differ from binomial heaps, however, in that they have a more relaxed structure, allowing for improved asymptotic time bounds. Work that maintains the structure can be delayed until it is convenient to perform.Like the dynamic tables of Section 18.4, Fibonacci heaps offer a good example of a data structure designed with amortized analysis in mind. The intuition and analyses of Fibonacci heap operations in the remainder of this chapter rely heavily on the potential method of Section 18.3.The exposition in this chapter assumes that you have read Chapter 20 on binomial heaps. The specifications for the operations appear in that chapter, as does the table in Figure 20.1, which summarizes the time bounds for operations on binary heaps, binomial heaps, and Fibonacci heaps. Our presentation of the structure of Fibonacci heaps relies on that of binomial heap structure. You will also find that some of the operations performed on Fibonacci heaps are similar to those performed on binomial heaps.Like binomial heaps, Fibonacci heaps are not designed to give efficient support to the operation SEARCH; operations that refer to a given node therefore require a pointer to that node as part of their input.Section 21.1 defines Fibonacci heaps, discusses their representation, and presents the potential function used for their amortized analysis. Section 21.2 shows how to implement the mergeable-heap operations and achieve the amortized time bounds shown in Figure 20.1. The remaining two operations, DECREASE-KEY and DELETE, are presented in Section 21.3. Finally, Section 21.4 finishes off a key part of the analysis.21.1 Structure of Fibonacci heapsLike a binomial heap, a Fibonacci heap is a collection of heap-ordered trees. The trees in a Fibonacci heap are not constrained to be binomial trees, however. Figure 21.1 (a) shows an example of a Fibonacci heap.Unlike trees within binomial heaps, which are ordered, trees within Fibonacci heaps are rooted but unordered. As Figure 21.1(b) shows, each node x contains a pointer p[x] to its parent and a pointer child[x] to any one of its children. The children of x are linked together in a circular, doubly linked list , which we call the child list of x. Each child y in a child list has pointers left[y] and right[y] that point to y's left and right siblings, respectively. If node y is an only child, then left[y] = right[y] = y. The order in which siblings appear in a child list is arbitrary.Circular, doubly linked lists (see Section 11.2) have two advantages for use in Fibonacci heaps. First, we can remove a node from a circular, doubly linked list in O(1) time. Second, given two such lists, we can concatenate them (or "splice" them together) into one circular, doubly linked list in O(1) time. In the descriptions of Fibonacci heap operations, we shall refer to these operations informally, letting the reader fill in the details of their implementations.Two other fields in each node will be of use. The number of children in the child list of node x is stored in degree[x]. The boolean-valued field mark[x] indicates whether node x has lost a child since the last time x was made the child of another node. We won't worry about the details of marking nodes until Section 21.3. Newly created nodes are unmarked, and a node x becomes unmarked whenever it is made the child of another node.Figure 21.1 (a) A Fibonacci heap consisting of five heap-ordered trees and 14 nodes. The dashed line indicates the root list. The minimum node of the heap is the node containing the key 3. The three marked nodes are blackened. The potential of this particular Fibonacci heap is 5 + 2 3 = 11. (b) A more complete representation showing pointers p (up arrows), child (down arrows), and left and right (sideways arrows). These details are omitted in the remaining figures in this chapter, since all the information shown here can be determined from what appears in part (a).A given Fibonacci heap H is accessed by a pointer min[H] to the root of the tree containing a minimum key; this node is called the minimum node of the Fibonacci heap. If a Fibonacci heap H his empty, then min[H] = NIL.The roots of all the trees in a Fibonacci heap are linked together using their left and right pointers into a circular, doubly linked list called the root list of the Fibonacci heap. The pointer min[H] thus points to the node in the root list whose key is minimum. The order of the trees within a root list is arbitrary.We rely on one other attribute for a Fibonacci heap H: the number of nodes currently in H is kept in n[H].Potential functionAs mentioned, we shall use the potential method of Section 18.3 to analyze the performance of Fibonacci heap operations. For a given Fibonacci heap H, we indicate by t(H) the number of trees in the root list of H and by m (H) the number of marked nodes in H. The potential of Fibonacci heap H is then defined by(H) = t(H) + 2m(H) .(21.1)For example, the potential of the Fibonacci heap shown in Figure 21.1 is 5 + 2 3 = 11. The potential of a set of Fibonacci heaps is the sum of the potentials of its constituent Fibonacci heaps. We shall assume that a unit of potential can pay for a constant amount of work, where the constant is sufficiently large to cover the cost of any of the specific constant-time pieces of work that we might encounter.We assume that a Fibonacci heap application begins with no heaps. The initial potential, therefore, is 0, and by equation (21.1), the potential is nonnegative at all subsequent times. From equation (18.2), an upper bound on the total amortized cost is thus an upper bound on the total actual cost for the sequence of operations.Maximum degreeThe amortized analyses we shall perform in the remaining sections of this chapter assume that there is a known upper bound D(n) on the maximum degree of any code in an n-node Fibonacci heap. Exercise 21.2-3 shows that when only the mergeable-heap operations are supported, D(n) = lg n. In Section 21.3, we shall show that when we support DECREASE-KEY and DELETE as well, D(n) = O(lg n).21.2 Mergeable-heap operationsIn this section, we describe and analyze the mergeable-heap operations as implemented for Fibonacci heaps. If only these operations--MAKE-HEAP, INSERT, MINIMUM, EXTRACT-MIN, and UNION--are to be supported, each Fibonacci heap is simply a collection of "unordered" binomial trees. An unordered binomial tree is like a binomial tree, and it, too, is defined recursively. The unordered binomial tree U0 consists of a single node, and an unordered binomial tree Uk consists of two unordered binomial trees Uk-1 for which the root of one is made into any child of the root of the other. Lemma 20.1, which gives properties of binomial trees, holds for unordered binomial trees as well, but with the following variation on property 4 (see Exercise 21.2-2):4' For the unordered binomial tree Uk.The root has degree k, which is greater than that of any other node. The children of the root are roots of subtrees U0, U1, . . . , Uk-1 in some order.Thus, if an n-node Fibonacci in heap is a collection of unordered binomial trees, then D(n) = lg n.The key idea in the mergeable-heap operations on Fibonacci heaps is to delay work as long as possible. There is a performance trade-off among implementations of the various operations. If the number of trees in a Fibonacci heap is small, then we can quickly determine the new minimum node during an EXTRACT-MIN operation. However, as we saw with binomial heaps in Exercise 20.2-10, we pay a price for ensuring that the number of trees is small: it can take up to (1g n) time to insert a node into a binomial heap or to unite two binomial heaps. As we shall see, we do not attempt to consolidate trees in a Fibonacci heap when we insert a new node or unite two heaps. We save the consolidation for the EXTRACT-MIN operation, which is when we really need to find the new minimum node.Creating a new Fibonacci heapTo make an empty Fibonacci heap, the MAKE-FIB-HEAP procedure allocates and returns the Fibonacci heap object H, where n[H] = 0 and min[H] = NIL; there are no trees in H. Because t (H) = 0 and m(H) = 0, the potential of the empty Fibonacci heap is (H) = 0. The amortized cost of MAKE-FIB-HEAP is thus equal to its O(1) actual cost.Inserting a nodeThe following procedure inserts node x into Fibonacci heap H, assuming of course that the node has already been allocated and that key[x] has already been filled in.FIB-HEAP-INSERT(H, x)1 degree[x] 02 p[x] NIL3 child[x] NIL4 left[x] x5 right[x] x6 mark[x] FALSE7 concatenate the root list containing x with root list H 8 if min[H] = NIL or key[x] key[min[H]]9 then min[H] x10 n[H] n[H] + 1After lines 1-6 initialize the structural fields of node x, making it its own circular, doubly linked list , line 7 adds x to the root list of H in O(1) actual time. Thus, node x becomes a single-node heap-ordered tree, and thus an unordered binomial tree, in the Fibonacci heap. It has no children and is unmarked. Lines 8-9 then update the pointer to the minimum node of Fibonacci heap H if necessary. Finally, line 10 increments n[H] to reflect the addition of the new node. Figure 21.2 shows a node with key 21 inserted into the Fibonacci heap of Figure 21.1.Unlike the BINOMIAL-HEAP-INSERT procedure, FIB-HEAP-INSERT makes no attempt to consolidate the trees within the Fibonacci heap. If k consecutive FIB-HEAP-INSERT operations occur, then k single-node trees are added to the root list.Figure 21.2 Inserting a node into a Fibonacci heap. (a) A Fibonacci heap H. (b) Fibonacci heap H after the node with key 21 has been inserted. The node becomes its own heap-ordered tree and is then added to the root list, becoming the left sibling of the root.To determ
